María Rosario Martín Ruano
I am an associate professor at the University of Salamanca, Spain, where I am a member of the Research Group on Translation, Ideology and Culture, and co-leader of the research project entitled VIOSIMTRAD (‘Symbolic Violence and Translation’, FFI2015-66516-P; MINECO/FEDER, UE [2016-2020]).
My research interests include legal and institutional translation, translation and ideology, and gender and postcolonial approaches to translation.
I have published widely on these issues, including a number of books and co-edited volumes, as well as chapters and articles in journals such as The Interpreter and Translator Trainer, TTR, JosTRans, Linguistica Antverpiensia, Translation and Interpreting, etc., and in books published by Routledge, Multilingual Matters, John Benjamins, St. Jerome, Peter Lang, Comares, etc.
I am a member of the editorial board of Perspectives, Estudios de Traducción, Clina and a reviewer for various specialized journals (Target, Meta, JosTRans, Language and Intercultural Communication, MonTI, etc.). I have also been a practicing translator since 1997.
